VANCOUVER—Team Canada is holding a fundraiser on Wednesday, September 1 from 6:30 – 10:30PM at Doolins Pub at Granville and Nelson. Tickets are $15 and include a burger and a beer. The event will feature special guests, a silent auction and live entertainment.
This is a benefit and send-off for Street Soccer Team Canada which is going to Rio De Janiero, Brazil on Sept 15 to represent us in the 64-nation Homeless World Cup. Players have recently been homeless, are homeless, or are at risk for homelessness.
Most of Team Canada’s players were originally recruited from shelters run by PHS Community Services Society.
CUPE 15 and CUPE 1004 members work for both PHS and the Carnegie Community Centre and both locals are supporting the team financially and with volunteers.
